Missing my blog!!!

It's been a while since I blogged last and since then I have had some time to chill and do a little creating for myself.  Something I haven't done for a long time.  Anyway, we have a huge wedding coming up for this lovely couple.
This is Darcy and Danny. Darcy is our daughter and their wedding is in 3 short weeks, we can't wait for these two to be husband and wife.  They are a perfect couple and we are excited for their future.

So along with this wedding comes a little decorating and some fun crafting.  I love the colors they chose, Coral, tan and cream.  It's a little bit country and should be beautiful. I made this card cake box for the gift table and hope it is perfect for their day. It stands about 30" high and should hold lots of cards. All the roses are handmade.  My Minds Eye decorates the box and the flowers are all card stock.

Well this isn't all I've been up to, I've been making lots of layouts using up some of my stash and having lots of fun doing it!  Here's a couple more layouts for you. This first one is the wedding of some of my good friends.  I took the photos and had so many to choose from to scrap. Gorgeous wedding and Kaiser's new Violet Crush papers were perfect for these photos.
This next layout is of my puppy Pearl who is no longer a puppy.  She turned one this month and still acts like this photo!  She is happy go lucky and will probably never grow up!  We still love her fun personality even though she is a handful. She is only 5 weeks old in this photo and we hadn't even picked her up yet.  We had her all picked out but she was still with her litter.
Here she is today. One year old and she is ornery as can be!
Well that's about it for now...I'll share more soon as I have lots more to share.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Touch of Grey Scraps of Darkness

If I haven't told you I love weddings and I do a lot of photography of weddings and then love to scrap them. Scraps of Darkness Touch of Grey kit was a perfect kit for wedding layouts.  The layout I want to share with you today is of the bride and groom leaving the ceremony headed to the reception hall.  This country wedding  is one of the most beautiful and fun weddings I've ever been to.  The flowers were my favorite...sunflowers. 

I'm looking forward to a few more weddings this summer.  It gives me so many photo opportunities and  that's something that is always of interest to me.  I have recently made some big decisions about my future and will be announcing them soon.  You'll still be seeing my scrapbook pages on this blog but soon you'll also be seeing another side of me that I don't share all the time.  I'll be sharing a new blog along with that and a new website and Facebook page.

I still have a few more layouts to share with this gorgeous kit so make sure you check back soon.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Scraps of Darkness and a little more

I'm still here. Have you been wondering where I've been? Well it's a long story and one that I can't go into detail about. I will share a little after I share the layouts I just finished with the new Scraps of Darkness kit - Touch of Gray. This kit is loaded with a lot of beautiful products.Let me start out with a layout of a wedding that I was at. Such a fun wedding in the mountains of Colorado. It was a cowboy wedding and we had a great time.
thanks for stopping by, if you stop by again early next week,I'll have more to share. Don't    forget to stop by the Scraps of Darkness for more inspiration from the design team.                 This will be my last month with all my teams. I have decided that this is a perfect time for a much needed break. My decision was made after someone had invaded my blog and then decided to impersonate me by sending some fraudulent emails. Since then they have located the person/persons IP addresses. More to come.

  This blog post was created on March 13th @ 6:45 pm.  I scheduled it to post at 12 pm on March 14th at noon.   It was blogged from my privately owned computer.

Scraps of Elegance February Reveal

Hi Everyone!

Today I am sharing a design team reveal layout for Scraps of Elegance with the gorgeous "Love Always" kit you can find it here.

 For this layout I really wanted to play with the Color Add On kit so I started out by adding a little ink to the background.  I then added a little modeling paste and some stamping.  Idid all the design and when everything was adhered I dry brushed the color on.  I used a little Gesso to tone things down a bit and then added a little more stamping. The big heart is by the Leaky Shed Studio.  I painted it with Silks and added some gesso and the flowers.  The lock and key are from my stash as well as the Thickers for the title and the wood flourishes which I painted with the Silks.  The Prima Angel was painted with Silks and the I rubbed it off with a baby wipe. The leafs were also highlighted with Silks.

I love adding that big pop of color and sparkle and the Silks in the Color Add on was perfect for this! The big open hearts are by the Leaky Shed Studio.  To alter them I  started out by painting them with the Pink Silks and then added the Distress Glitter.  When the Glitter was dry I adhered the stringed beads to the top of the hearts.
To Complete these projects I used the following Add On Kits
Color Add On - Silks
Embellishment Add On
 Floral Add On
I added a few additional items from my stash that did not come with the kits to finish these layouts. 
Wood Flourishes, Lock and Key. Lace, a few small flowers.

This Kit is simply gorgeous and you will love working with it!  You can find the "Love Always" kit  here. Be sure to check out our gallery for more beautiful inspiration from our design team!

Thanks for stopping by today!
